Oh dear. What did the kids just break?

No, no, nothing's broken. I'm just reflecting on why I shouldn't finance earthly vanities that will rust or rot away or be thrown on the floor.

That's the spirit, MrsD! You know what this means, don't you, Darwin? It means your lovely wife has attained a degree of virtue which enables you to spend the money that would have fed her vanities on yours. How's a new router AND an M-14 sound? Oh happy day for you!

;)

Glad to know that nothing has been broken!
Is that sweet baby all better? Hopefully, no one else got it...

mrsdarwin said...

Thanks, Barb -- Baby is feeling a lot better. She's perked up enough to quarrel with her sisters and play with a permanent marker, so I think she's recovered.

Ma'am, to play devil's advocate... money is of this world, and money is for spending.

If it makes yourselves happier or your kids happier, does no harm (buy American!) and lets you plan for the future... go for it!

(Give the older, stury plates to someone who needs them-- my folks still have a set of plates they got shortly after getting married, because my Godparents knew that the wedding gift plates were FAR too fragile to use around kids!)

Well, if you got what you wanted.... you could be bequeathing a whole lot of broken crockery to future generations of archaeologists.. and surely that would be a noble use for it.

mrsdarwin said...

Thanks, Foxfier. I like your reasoning!

Kiwi, I don't know if the archaeologists want any more of my shattered dishes and glasses -- I think we've already cycled through four complete sets of glasses since we were married. Still, those were pretty basic pieces. I bet future excavators would appreciate some quality stuff to study, and if we had quality stuff some of it would be sure to end up broken in a landfill somewhere.
